Glenn Hauser logs December +29-30, 2018

** CUBA. 6000, Dec 30 at 0144, song in Spanish from presumed English service of RHC is just barely modulated; slightly louder on // 6165. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 6140, Dec 30 at 0616, RHC English is JBA up to S6, i.e. leapfrog mixing product of 6060 over 6100 another 40 kHz higher. More of them also weaker but audible now: // 6230 which is 6100 over 6165 another 65 kHz higher; and 6270 which is 6060 over 6165 another 105 kHz higher. But none involving 6000 which is from a different transmitter site. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO. 540, Dec 20 at 1333, XETX, La Ranchera de Paquimé, Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, plugging now being also on FM (90.5). New IRCA Mexican Log says per IFT it will be staying on AM; as usual manages to dominate 540 here around SRS (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NORTH AMERICA. 6954.0-USB, Dec 30 at 0125, talk and guitar at S9, into hard rock live performance with a crowd. 0140 SSTV, 0142 back to concert; recheck 0208 still going with heavy percussion S9+20, 0213 cut to short SSTV and off. These logs say it was Skippy Radio:,49512.0.html based solely on one of the SSTV images; no one nor I reported hearing any audible IDs (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** OKLAHOMA [and non]. 640, Dec 30 at 1334 UT, dead air from KWPN Moore, as usual around this time on Sunday mornings, facilitating KFI talk and something else (Glenn Hauser, Enid, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** TURKEY. 12035.74, Dec 30 at 1407, VOT English with Turkish music is S5-S7 and off-frequency; while 11815.0, VOT Turkish with Turkish music is quite stronger, S6-S9 and not much off-frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4630-USB, UT Sun Dec 30 at 0200, must be CAP net as heard a few times before. Strictly struxured, YL utters encrypted message, each group twice, in clear fonetix, titled 4JV8L: MKGKS 3JCN3 SKF7K B5QV9 SQMNF DGWFV. Her OM contact then reads it back, each group once. On contrary, their own tactical calls are not clearly copied, ending with two numbers, like Reindeer? 50. More messages follow. What`s so secret about Civil Air Patrol? Makes it hush-hush para-military (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5950 // 7780 // 9395, Sat Dec 29 at 2203, whatever the skeds 
may show, these three WRMIs are all running Oldies Xmasmx.

5950 // 9395, Sun Dec 30 at 0611, more Xmasmx Oldies, not WRN and not RFI (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5850, UT Sun Dec 30 at 0143, WRMI-12 with World Music fill, as skedgrid shows System F at 01-02 UT with blank blox on Sat, Sun, Wed, Thu; and one half or the other on Mon, Tue (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9330.113, Dec 30 at 1412, TOMBS via WBCQ achieves its typical off-frequenciness, despite having reached 9330.004, Dec 29 at 0100 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 4840, UT Sun Dec 30 at 0150, WWCR with `VORW`; John is introspectively musing about his experiences as a YouTube producer. Says this is hour one of two, but cut off abruptly at 0200 by WWCR for its next show, `Truth House with E. C. Fulcher` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. Re: ``7335, Dec 22 [not 23 as in original report] at 2319, sermon in American about Jesus, Xmas. Didn`t realize WHRI is here, but HFCC registered daily 22-24, 250 kW at 47 degrees. Thisaway, it`s only S9-S7. In fact, WHR does not know about it either, missing from: nor is 7.335 one of the frequencies in their drop-down search list, nor is it on the program schedules for Angels 1, 2, 5 or 6!``

Family Broadcasting Corporation, what`s that?? ``Family Broadcasting Corporation (formerly LeSEA Broadcasting Corporation) exists to reach out to the lost across the globe and to provide you and your family with an alternative to viewing secular television programs``. So no more LeSEA; when did that change? Maybe they got tired of having to explain/teach how to spell correctly that strange name. For the historical record, it meant: LEster Sumrall Evangelistic Association.

Jari Savolainen replied: ``Re LeSea into Family BC; OpenCorporates give the name change date as 5 Sep 2018``

Ivo Ivanov replied: ``Angel 1 7335 kHz is new frequency 2200-2400 Sat/Sun, ex 9505 kHz, probably from Dec. 2. From March 2 will be again 9505`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, WORLD OF RADIO 1962, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, Dec 30 at 1320, not a full bandscan but checking some likely spots: 837 (maybe megawatt CNR5 in Fujian), while the major NHKs are not audible); 1098-west, surely Marshall Islands carrier. At 1329 now I have traces from the NW of NHK on 828, 774, 693, 594; and Korea South on 1566 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
